THE DOUBLE STANDARDS AGENCY:

October 8, 2017

Bag the F.S.A. and sling it in the bin – after sterilising it!

An article in the Daily Mail (Oct 2nd 2017) by G.Odling headed “COULD BAGS FOR LIFE END UP SPREADING DEADLY BUGS?” places the onus of food safety on the consumer. The F.S.A. informs us that the packaging of raw foods can harbour dangerous bacteria and we should take steps to protect ourselves. This is ludicrous. Consumers shouldn’t be expected to take home food in contaminated packaging.
They will also no longer check supermarket chickens for campylobacter on the grounds that “supermarkets and their suppliers had made significant progress in taking action to reduce levels in their products.” Volkswagen have made “significant progress” after fiddling the emission levels of their cars but their cars are still being checked; roadside monitors continually check the air for pollution; restaurants and cafes are repeatedly checked. It is the duty of all in the food chain from farm to kitchen to supply us with safe and wholesome food and the duty of the F.S.A. to make sure that this is the case with REPEATED checks.

OWN GOAL!

June 9, 2017

OWN GOAL!

This must be the most spectacular own goal in British political history.

The way to good health is glutton free!

The B.B.C. has been accused of bias over BREXIT.

THE ALL AMERICAN FREAK SHOW:

November 8, 2016

After the most acrimonious and divisive election campaign in American political history a new president is to be elected. This president will have to deal with the most unstable and dangerous world situation since World War 2. He or she will need the support of the American people and all who believe in democracy and freedom. The failed policies and attitudes of the past must be abandoned; Dialogue must replace threats, respect must replace contempt, honesty must replace lies, co-operation must replace aggression. To continue as before is a recipe for misunderstanding with possible dire consequences.

A CHALLENGE:

July 15, 2016

Let’s hope this doesn’t go wrong! Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary! It will certainly help on his road to maturity but hopefully not at the expense of GREAT Britain; There must be subtle tactics working here!

ANDREA LEADSOM BOWS OUT WITH GRACE

POLITICAL SOUND-BYTE:

July 9, 2016

From The Times newspaper: A quote from Andrea Leadsom.
“[Mrs May] possibly has nieces, nephews, lots of people, but I have children who are going to have children who will directly be a part of what happens next.”

Such insensitive, crass and opportunistic comments from Andrea Leadsom should rule her out from any high office let alone the highest office in the Land. I suppose the same goes for single men!

THE WAY FORWARD

June 28, 2016

There are people and parties trying to make political capital from this historic vote. This is not the time to discuss further division: The Pound is being hammered, shares have dived and we’ve triggered a global financial crisis. We must let the dust settle and get this “divorce” over with as quickly as possible. The new Prime Minister should invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty as soon as possible irrespective of what’s in store; We have made our bed and we must lie in it.

SOUND BYTE:

The only dignity that Greece has lost is the dignity of paying her debts.
